Personally, I wouldn’t be impressed. 

I don’t like Toms in general though, I know they are for a good cause, but they just seem trendy to me and like you’re trying to be a “cool kid.”  Hopefully I didn’t just offend anyone with that, because I know they are popular but…

I think the Toms would take away from the dress (which is georgeous by the way!) I think if you are really concerned with comfort I’d do a jewled flip flop or sandal.

You can also rub a blister preventive stick on your feet before you put on any shoes. They really work!

No one is going to see you feet so it doesn’t really matter what shoe you wear. Especially since you’re going barefoot at your reception.

I was going to wear TOMS but found another pair of flats I liked better because I will be wearing them all night.

@Eireann:  The reality is that with a floor length dress no one is going to see your shoes unless you deliberately show them, so no one is going to think you are trying to be  cool if you wear TOMS.

I don’t know about the original TOMS you posted here, but I don’t think the ballet flats are that great.  I have a pair and they aren’t very comfortable.  Especially not for $80 a pop.  I have $20 ballet flats that my feet like a lot more.

I have a pair of the original TOMS flats in navy. I was resistent to getting them because I don’t usually go on trendy bandwagon. However, after numerous people raved about their comfort levels to me, I had to check them out.

Verdict? They’re not gorgeous but they are comfortable. I can walk around in them all day without getting blisters. They are more comfortable than many of my other flats. But I’d try them out before your wedding, every girl is different.

For a beach wedding, I think they’d be easier to walk around in than heels and you don’t have the mess factor of sand in your toes the way you would with sandals. You probably won’t see them under a dress if you’re considered about looks. 

As a fellow wide foot girl, I must warn you that I had to go up a size to fit into TOMS. I usually wear an 8 or 7.5W but my size 9 TOMS fit me perfectly.

I wear the Tom’s ballet flats to work, they are comfortable enough.  I don’t know if I would buy them again, but they are WAY cuter than regular Tom’s.

@o0olibelulao0o:  I didn’t know TOMS made wedges… I have never liked the look of the originals TOMS… But boy do I love those wedges! I’m gonna be on the look out for a sale now πŸ™‚ I especially love those houndstooth ones – but they look rather fall/winter to me… So I feel like they should be closed-toe :/ hmm… haha

@Eireann:  I think a jeweled sandal is a better fit for your dress and the style of your wedding πŸ™‚ But… I know of plenty of girls who rocked TOMS and were thrilled with their decision

Have you seen the bridal white Tom’s? They have sparkle but not too much to take away from your dress.
